HP Hops On The 3D Train, Launches The HP Envy 17 3D Notebook

If you were browsing HP’s online catalog and quietly dreaming of a 3D-ified version of the HP Envy 17, it’s your lucky day. First, run out and buy a lottary ticket and then come right back here and peep the latest edition to HP’s Envy line: The Envy 17 3D.

Besides the obvious addition of the 3D screen and glasses, this model comes with a Core i7-720QM Quad Core CPU standard rather than the Core i5 chip in the standard Envy 17. Plus, the full HD LED backlit LCD is the only available monitor option. Everything else — RAM, hard drive, backlit keyboard, software pack — is the same as the non-3D brother. Worth it for $1,599 instead of $1,299? Well, that’s between you and your bank account, but also if you’re going to watch a fair amount of 3D content. (You won’t. Trust me) [via Logic Buy]
